I hope you get your music program back.
Yea, I grew up in Detroit and just recently came back to Michigan, but not the Detroit area. I read this while visiting my parents. Things around here are sooo screwed up, The state taking over the city and schools, or threatening to, the mayor resigned and now is in jail, principals embezzling, and god know what else. I think most are at a loss about what they can do.
